Threats to business network systems was the theme at the August installment of Networking@Noon last week. 

Tom Douglas, president of JMARK Business Solutions, delivered an eye-opening message to a full community room at the Bolivar Area Chamber of Commerce event, held at Citizens Memorial Hospital on Thursday, Aug. 8. 

Douglas’ presentation looked at seeking solutions for cyber security in an ever threatening world. 

Tips on best practices, educating employees against phishing attacks and how to best set a plan of action to secure networks were all on the menu. 

Networking@Noon is the second Thursday of each month. According to the chamber, the next session is set for Thursday, Sept. 12, and will feature John Fleming of SCORE. He will deliver a 30-minute presentation geared toward developing a mentoring relationship between the Bolivar community and SCORE, a network of volunteer, expert business mentors, with more than 10,000 volunteers in 300 chapters.
